Shelby creates portraits that are meant to last a lifetime. Capturing images in unique environments that create everlasting moments, she produces these images to convey the essence of her client’s character; personal story, and how they appear in everyday life. Using black and white to emphasize her subjects, also generates an ambiance for the viewer to think more viscerally. Compelled to increase the dynamic between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, these images are about getting to know a subject exploring ideas, and going above and beyond to create a breathtaking photograph. “Every face is different, and every face tells its own stories in a different way.”
